Having problems with your 1996 Audi A4 ?

Power Steering Fluid Leak, boiling fluid.

\015 I've had a leak in my Audi's PS fluid since I got it as a used car from my Grandparents. They just told me to replace the power steering fluid every week, and doing so has worked up until a few days ago. Now, the wheel is tight by the time I reach my destination regardless of how much I put in. I'm literally running through bottles of this stuff just to get to work. The leak is on the left side of the car, pretty far back (no where near the PS fluid reservoir). On top of this, when I check the fluid after arriving at my destination, I see bubbles in the fluid. Why is this happening now? How much do you think it will cost? Thanks guys.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 14-08-2017

Answers :

Look at the steering rack on the side of the car that you think the leak is, look for the steering rack boot or gaiter, it looks like a black circular accordian type thing.
\015\012If this is bulging and leaking fluid the seal in the end of the rack is gone, this is one of the most common faults of leaking fluid and at the rate you are losing fluid, the leak is on the pressurised side of the system after the pump (the seal at the end of the rack)
